Vibrational Quantisation of Skyrmions

The Skyrme model can be used to describe atomic nuclei as topological solitons known as Skyrmions. Since atomic nuclei are intrinsically quantum objects, we must give a quantisation scheme for our

Loosening up the Skyrme model

We consider the Skyrme model with the addition of extra scalar potentials that decrease the classical binding energies of the Skyrmions to about the 3% level -- without altering the pion mass -- if

Coriolis terms in Skyrmion quantization

Vibrational modes of Skyrmions

We study the vibrational modes of Skyrmions with baryon numbers one through eight in the standard Skyrme model. The vibrational modes are found in the harmonic approximation around the classical

Exploring the generalized loosely bound Skyrme model

The Skyrme model is extended with a sextic derivative term, called the BPS-Skyrme term, and a repulsive potential term, called the loosely bound potential. A large part of the model's parameter space

Roper resonances and quasi-normal modes of Skyrmions

A bstractRadial vibrations of charge one hedgehog Skyrmions in the full Skyrme model are analysed. We investigate how the properties of the lowest resonance modes (quasi normal modes) — their

Dielectric Skyrmions

We consider the dielectric Skyrme model proposed recently, with and without the addition of the standard pion mass term. Then we write down Bogomol'nyi-type energy bounds for both the massless and

B=5 Skyrmion as a two-cluster system

The classical B=5 Skyrmion can be approximated by a two-cluster system in which a B=1 Skyrmion is attached to a core B=4 Skyrmion. We quantize this system, allowing the B=1 to freely orbit the core.

Quantized Skyrmions from SU(4) weight diagrams

Starting from solutions of the lightly-bound Skyrme model, we construct many new Skyrmion solutions of the standard Skyrme model with tetrahedral or octahedral symmetry. These solutions are closely

Near-BPS Skyrmions

We consider the Skyrme model in the near-BPS limit. The BPS part is made of the sextic term plus a potential and the deformation is made of the standard massive Skyrme model controlled by a small



Vibrational spectrum of the B=7 Skyrme soliton

The finite energy vibrational normal modes of the baryon number B=7 Skyrme soliton are computed. The structure of the spectrum obtained displays considerable similarity to those previously calculated

States of carbon-12 in the Skyrme model.

The Skyrme model has two Skyrmion solutions of baryon number 12, with D_{3h} and D_{4h} symmetries, with a good match with the ground-state band of carbon-12, and with the recently established rotational band of the Hoyle state.

Deuteron as a soliton in the Skyrme model.

The minimal-energy static soliton solution with baryon number 2 in the Skyrme model is discussed. It is shown that, upon quantizing the spin isospin collective coordinates and taking into account a

Light nuclei as quantized Skyrmions

We consider the rigid-body quantization of Skyrmions with topological charges 1 to 8, as approximated by the rational map ansatz. Novel general expressions for the elements of the inertia tensors, in

Cluster Model Calculation on the Energy Levels of the Lithium Isotopes

A variational procedure is adopted to determine the energies of the levels of the highest space symmetry type in Li/sup 6/ and Li/sup 7/. The trial wave functions employed take into consideration the
